Give Thanks to the Lord

"Give Thanks to the Lord" by Karma Wilson (Celebrating Scripture Psalm 92)

This picture book shows a family celebrating Thanksgiving together. It is narrated from a young boy in the family.

"It is good to give thanks to the Lord! Friends and family here at last. Hugs and kisses all around. Everybody says, "Hello!" Laughter makes a merry sound. The day is lovely, cool, and bright. Our house is filled with noisy cheer. A perfect day for giving thanks as we all gather here. It is good to give thanks to the Lord!"

The children play outside in the leaves, drink warm cider, smell delicious pies and enjoy a Thanksgiving feast. The illustrations show the children getting a long and having a fun time. The young boy fills up on pumpkin pie with his grandpa.

"I'm so tired I have to yawn as we all say our sad goodbyes. I climb in bed, whisper prayers, get a good-night kiss, and shut my eyes. And it's good, so good to give thanks to the Lord."
